In this Students for Liberty colloquium, hosted by Students for Promotion of International Law (SPIL), we will explore the role of government in an individual’s life choices by exploring the ideas of thinkers like Lysander Spooner, John Stuart Mill, John Locke and Ayn Rand.
The colloquium on this topic will raise questions like:
To what extent is a man free to pursue his own goals and values? When do his actions cease to be private, and become subject to public approval? Is the democratic process a good justiﬁcation for a law? Is it the government’s role to prescribe morality? and more!
About SFL Colloquia
How often have you watched a debate and felt, ‘both sides have some valid points if only they stopped trying to prove each other wrong and tried to listen’? The nature of a debate is competitive and oppositional with both sides trying to prove each other wrong.
An SFL Colloquium is a collaborative, cooperative dialogue in which multiple sides work toward a shared understanding. Dialogue creates an open-minded attitude; openness to being wrong and an openness to change while respecting other participants.
